Rhyming and Lyrics – Huffing Fumes

Huffing Fumes by Melodie Yvonne

My pumpin’ heart’s so loud here in this quiet, lonely house
The passing cars light up the walls and splash it all around
The crickets getting louder still don’t cover up my sin
And I can’t believe I banged my head against this wall again

The bottle’s in the other room alive and chillin’ out
My girl in Alabama got Xanax on tap like stout
And all I gotta do is get some drive to drive some time
Then I’m in over my head again like sis at 5 & Dime

I’m numb as fuck, but still somehow still feelin’ all the pain
I wouldn’t take it back, though, I’d still feel it all again
‘Cause with this crushing sadness comes my very favorite sin
And I’d rip out my own fucking heart to go back there again

I try to push, but everything just pushes back at me
I try to float away, but still somehow just fallin’ free
Please just let me stay I know it’s over when I leave
You choke me out, but you’re the only air I need to breathe

My pumpin’ heart’s so loud here in this quiet, lonely house
The passing cars light up the walls and splash it all around
The crickets gettin’ louder still don’t cover up my sin
But I’d rip out my own fucking heart to be with you again

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
